Aretha Franklin, whose gospel-rooted singing and bluesy yet expansive delivery earned her the title "the Queen of Soul," has died, a family statement said Thursday. She was 76.

The "official cause of death was due to advanced pancreatic cancer of the neuroendocrine type, which was confirmed by Franklin's oncologist, Dr. Philip Phillips of Karmanos Cancer Institute in Detroit," the family statement said.

Tributes and tears flooded in Thursday after news of her death broke. "Aretha helped define the American experience," former President Barack Obama said in a statement. "In her voice, we could feel our history, all of it and in every shade -- our power and our pain, our darkness and our light, our quest for redemption and our hard-won respect. May the Queen of Soul rest in eternal peace." #ArethaFranklin

❤️REUNION! Skippy, the toy poddle stolen from a Richmond McDonald’s, has been reunited with his parents! ❤️

Have you seen Skippy? This 10-year-old poodle was in the back seat of his owners car when it was stolen from the McDonalds in Shockoe Bottom. According to his owners, he is very friendly and likes belly rubs - please call Richmond Police or Animal Control if you see him. *Story link in bio*

Let’s take a moment to remember Virginia State Police Troopers Lieutenant H. Jay Cullen III and Trooper-Pilot Berke M.M. Bates.
The troopers were on their way to provide over-watch for the governor's motorcade when their Virginia State Police helicopter crashed in Albemarle County last year after the deadly rally in Charlottesville. “Today we pause to remember the lives lost, and the lives forever changed, by the violence in Charlottesville a year ago. We will never forget Lt. Jay Cullen, Trooper-Pilot Berke Bates, and Heather Heyey," Gov. Ralph Northam said.
Please keep their families, friends and their law enforcement colleagues in your thoughts and prayers.

The mother of the counterprotester killed when a suspected neo-Nazi sympathizer drove a car into a crowd last year in Charlottesville spoke at a memorial for her daughter. “I don't want other mothers to go through this," Susan Bro, Heather Heyer's mother, wept. "So today, not only do we remember my baby girl, I want to thank the troopers for their sacrifice -- and these flowers are for the troopers who lost their lives that day."

Video shows a truck engulfed in flames on I-95 north in Petersburg after the vehicle was involved in a two-vehicle crash Friday evening. There are no reports of injuries. Sources say the truck engulfed in flames had 9 mm rounds inside of it. That ammunition was going off when crews arrived on scene, according to those sources.

National Night Out!

Do you remember where you were on Aug. 6, 1993? That is the day 18 tornadoes touched down across the Commonwealth in one of the worst weather events Virginia has ever experienced. But the biggest and most destructive was the twister that hit the Tri-Cities. An F4 tornado swept through Petersburg, Colonial Heights, Hopewell and Prince George doing tens of millions of dollars in damage. When it was over, four people were dead and parts of the area looked like a war zone. Watch CBS 6 News all day Monday for complete coverage of the Tri-Cities Tornado: 25 Years Later. Hear from the people who survived it, including CBS 6 Senior Reporter Wayne Covil, who was in Old Towne Petersburg with his camera when the tornado touched down. And learn how that storm forever changed the way rescue crews and local hospitals operate.
